I am very pleased to be showing you some squares and blankets which actually arrived yesterday. My poor lap top decided to give up on me yesterday, Mr. Twins thinks it was the heat that got to it and the constant work produced on it! I'm very happy to say today it's working fine so I shall carry on up-dating 'SIBOL'.
First of all I would like to show you some Challenge squares. joyce28 has very kindly sent these in to me along with her friend Kathy.
Let's take a look at Kathy's Heart square first. A great Knitted square with a Heart, wonderful thank you so much Kathy.
A square made in a lovely shade of lilac thank you!
We move on to the Heart square that joyce28 sent in to me......
Really unusual design Joyce, but very nice indeed. We also have a very colourful 'Nursery Rhyme' square.
'There was an old woman who lived in a shoe........'
Do you remember this one? I certainly do. A great square thank you Joyce.
I think this one is so...comical too for our 'Faces Challenge'.
I'm very happy to be receiving your squares Joyce and Kathy thank you very much.
The fun doesn't stop there. Do you remember on June 14th I visited 'Grey Cables Care Home' in Birmingham? An Elderly Lady there called Vera was talking to me about her own Knitting and she said that she had a bag of Knitted squares in her wardrobe. She asked one of the Staff if they would go and fetch it for her. Inside was a large quantity of squares that she had made for someone else but they hadn't collected them. She kindly gave them to me. Here they are....
Well I must thank Joyce because along with the squares yesterday I received two blankets that she had assembled for me from Veras' squares. These blankets are so....colourful and have been put together beautifully. I have taken some photos and I will be sending them to Vera so she can see what we have made with her squares. I'm very grateful to you Joyce thank you. Thank you also to Vera, I don't expect 'she's on line!'
Excellent result I think........I'm so pleased that we could put them into one of our blankets.
Decorated with our SIBOL Butterflies and ribbon too, finishing them off.
I have just had the lunch time post arrive and I'm very grateful to BrendaS2 who has very kindly sent me in these squares.
Brenda has taken part in our Musical Challenge and these notes just sing out to you don't they?
I wonder what they are singing? Beautiful square thank you! I love it!
I also have a Heart square for our 'One Heart From Around The World' Challenge.
Thanks very much for taking part Brenda!
